Before there was the arrow, there was... us.

Today is my 7th wedding anniversary, and my husband and I have naturally spent the weekend reflecting on highs and lows throughout the past seven years (and truthfully, the seven years before that... we're high school sweethearts, so our memories include things like, dare I say it... prom).
So many of our highs revolve around our travels together (first as a couple, then as a family). A few highlights?
  • an amazing meal on the Piazza Navona in Rome during college
  • wine tasting along the Rhine in Germany
  • admiring artistic masterpieces in Paris
  • long walks in Killarney when I visited him while he spent a semester in Ireland
  • horseback riding in Jamaica on our honeymoon
  • watching my sister get married on Cumberland Island, Georgia
  • admiring the New York City skyline from the Statue of Liberty
  • sitting under the stars while camping in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin
  • discovering amazing towns like Ribadeo during our three weeks in Spain
  • learning we were pregnant with the arrow in Boston
  • snuggling with the arrow in South Haven, Michigan
  • reaching new heights with the arrow in Red River Gorge, Kentucky
  • splashing in the waves of Lake Michigan at Warren Dunes State Park
Wow, I'm one lucky girl.  That's what I'm dreaming of today.  Here's to many more (years of marriage and wonderful travel memories)!

  1. Congratulations on seven wonderful years! My husband and I love to reflect on all of our travels over the years as well. It is so exciting to think of all the places that you have been with your significant other and the things you have been able to do with and because of them!

  2. Congratulations! Here's hoping you'll have many more adventures together :)

  3. Happy anniversary!! That sounds like an amazing 14 years!

  4. Happy anniversary - such a nice photo. Like you I have lots of pre-baby travel memories as well and it is fun to pull them out. I'm pretty sure that neither of my children was conceived in the town where I live, a sure sign of intrepidity in my book.

    Hope you enjoy your day!

  5. Happy Anniversary!! A virtual toast to your adventures of the past and future!

  6. Wonderful Post. Way to go on 14 years~ We hit 15 this December and traveling with your partner and family is the best thing ever!

  7. Congrats on the anniversary! My husband and I are high school sweethearts too. I really hope that for my kids, as well. It's fun to grow up together!
